    Liquitex makes a whole range of airbrushable acrylic topcoats from ultra matte to high gloss.

    If a movement doesn't have someone that can sit down opposite those in a position of power and strike a deal, how can that movement achieve success?

    If you spray sections like arms, legs, or torso you can typically get 2 MGs per can unless it is something with lots of accessories like fin funnels on the Nu Gundam. But if you plan to top coat a bunch of kits and have the space for it then an airbrush and compressor will be a lot more cost effective in the long run.

    Ya got recommendations for airbrush topcoat? A bunch of the ones I know about are unsafe on bare plastic or waterslides

    I use Alclad's top coats which has been fine on plastic, waterslides, and Tamiya paints. Bonus points for saying prethinned and airbrush ready on the bottle.

    Against better judgment, I picked up my first MG:

    I need to improve my photography skills, and really learn how to use this light box better. But it's a start.

    I was wondering what sort of kit I should try practicing water decals and using a topcoat on but I remembered I had grabbed a Shoretrooper model kit a while ago. So maybe next weekend I'll try experimenting a little.

    Today I learned that I had never seen ep12 of 08th MS Team, despite watching the rest of the show twice from different sources before this go around.

    I also learned ep12 of 08th MS Team is fuckin weird

    100%. That was the most superfluous thing I've seen in a while.
    Though I guess props for making me absolutely fuckin livid for like 5 minutes with the fake out bad end scene.

    Trying a couple of new techniques with the FAZZ.

    First, I'm trying to use my Mr. Hobby nippers for the initial cut, and then my Tamiya for flush cutting. Hopefully will prolong the life of the Tamiya nippers, though I honestly have no clue how long nippers should last.

    Second, I'm trying to use water when sanding down nubs. The idea being to flush it, keep it from scratching unevenly, so on. One thing I have to keep an eye on is that on the yellow pieces, I can easily "embed" flecks of the sanding surfaces in the nubs and discolor them.

    With all that said?

    Man, is FAZZ an AGGRESSIVE shade of gray! Like I hear people talk about blue-gray lego all the time, but this is blue-gray! Really does feel like an unpainted, production model. It's also reminded me of a couple landing struts I forgot about in the original ZZ.

    If those numbers are accurate, those are some fine-ass grain sanding papers.

    CANNOT WAIT...

    to do that 3 times. :D


    It's cool seeing the little bits that are different with FAZZ. Like not having the same chest antennas and such. And while the landing gear is in there, it isn't gonna be functional. I'm about 1-2 pieces away from having the "main" torso done, and we'll do some actual comparisons then.

    I've decided I'm going to decal as I go, and I won't put on the armor until I'm done. It's getting cold so I might need to take advantage of my parents' garage to topcoat.

    Yeah. My last one was 60% or so with massive gusts. Not ideal, but I wanted to get it in before freezing.

    If you think about it, Deikun dies in 0068, so 0069 is the year the Zabi family dismantles the republic of Munzo to establish the principality around themselves so it is probably, perhaps, not nice

    EDIT: iOS I really gotta teach you Gundam words. You gotta know what a goddamn Zabi is

    I think that's the part about Unicorn that left a sour taste in my mouth after watching it. Because it was set between two other eras, it really couldn't affect the plot much... I mean, finding Laplace's Box should've been earth-shattering, no pun intended.

    Well, in F91 and (much more so) in Victory the Earth Federation is way, way less powerful/important than it is in first UC.

    I kind of wonder if they ever think about retconning F91 out of the timeline, cause if you jump straight from Unicorn to Victory it makes a bit more sense.

    F91 is so weird cause it feels like its 100 years after CCA but its actually close enough that people from 0079 that didn't die in a war are probably still kicking around. 80 year old Bright is probably sitting in a park somewhere trying to talk kids into fighting each other during that movie.
